My Git Infographic for Beginners

A quick and fun way to get started with Git and GitHub

Yomaira Escano

Sometimes we have to get creative with how to remember information. Learning Git and its connection with GitHub is among the most intimidating things that programmers have to deal with, especially as beginners. I created this infographic as a quick guide to get you started.

But first, let’s talk about some things to keep in mind before diving head first into the Git world in your terminal.

  1. Make sure you have Git installed. Follow this guide carefully to ensure you have the most recent version of Git on your system.

  2. git init and git remote are used only once in the life of each project. All other Git commands in the infographic must be repeated throughout the life of your project.

  3. Don’t forget to have FUN! Even experienced programmers need to be reminded of certain steps sometimes.

I hope this helps. Git and GitHub are very powerful and you will be using quite a bit of it. Don't get scared off by all the steps. You'll feel like a pro in no time.
